Overall Satisfaction with AWS Backup

We used AWS [Backup] as a backup for each server we have. Our data retention policies are fairly strong, and we keep about 3 months of backups in our services. AWS [Backup] was always some of the fastest and most efficient storage I've ever received. We were able to store lots and lots of backups with no problems. Never had an issue uploading either.
  • Backups - it's what it does.
  • Unable to organize folders. Maybe this is just something basic, but I was unable to move files around. I was doing everything manually, on the AWS site to no avail.
  • Allowed us to keep our data retention policies, and allow them to be stricter
I've tried a lot of different products. Backblaze, at least from a birds-eye view is significantly cheaper than AWS/the rest. Backblaze is a little more simpler, but it's well worth it.

Linode also provides backup options, however I'm only familiar with their backup on their VPS's (however you make that plural), which never gave me a problem.

Do you think AWS Backup delivers good value for the price?

Not sure

Are you happy with AWS Backup's feature set?

Yes

Did AWS Backup live up to sales and marketing promises?

Yes

Did implementation of AWS Backup go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy AWS Backup again?

Yes

AWS [Backup] does what it intends on doing. AWS [Backup] is very fast, however, for that speed, you'll end up with a high bill at the end of the month. Compared to competitors, AWS [Backup] is a lot more expensive than others. However, I believe it makes it up in it's versatility - there's no company more compatible with others than AWS.
